The third season, based on the third book in the trilogy, The Book of Life, consists of 7 episodes.
AMC tweeted a whirlwind video recap of the first two seasons which you can watch below. It manages to hit the high points of the series in just 5 minutes. Or you can stick with Steven Cree’s (Gallowglass) especially succinct version. He hits some of my high points. 😇 ❤️ 😉
So far, I haven’t found a Youtube version of this or any other S1/2 recap, but I’ll keep an eye out. AMC has put the full pilot episode of A Discovery of Witches up on Youtube to watch for free. It’s embedded below the recap tweet.
